First introduced in Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, the Marauder’s Map proved itself useful in helping Harry, Ron, and Hermione navigate Hogwarts undetected (especially when they were supposed to be in bed). And it left many readers and movie fans wishing they had a tool that useful in their own lives. But now, even if you never received your Hogwarts acceptance letter, you can bring the Marauder’s Map to your kitchen with this 16-piece porcelain dish set from Walmart for $120.
The set comes with four dinner plates each inscribed with “Moony, Wormtail, Padfoot, and Prongs are proud to present…” allowing you to proudly present your main dish. The four salad plates display a gold illustration of Hogwarts, while the mugs and bowls also have a gold illustration of the iconic school, complete with the Whomping Willow and footprints entering (or exiting) the castle. Unfortunately, you can't just tap the dishes with your wand and say “mischief managed,” to magically wipe them clean. Instead, you'll need to hand wash them.
Did you know that as useful as the Marauder’s Map proved to be, there were times J.K. Rowling wished she had Harry lose it? Learn why and some other Prisoner of Azkaban trivia. And if the dish set isn’t quite enough to satisfy your need for Harry Potter merch, check out our gift guide that includes a Deathly Hallows ring, an unofficial cookbook, and much more.
